GoodBye is a music video for Fan Hung A. We both love the Star Ferry Pier in Central which had to be demolished. As a documentation and a tribute to it, images of the harbour, ferries and the pier are appropriated as key images. There are 16mm archival film images and also super 8 home movies of relatives’ travel on the Victoria Harbour, together with the super 8 film and DV footage the artists did in 2005-6 composed as the work. The sound of bells of the tower at the end of the work is a long-gone collective memory of Hong Kongers.
